Health, as we know, is majorly looked at through the curative prism as opposed to the preventive prism. Instead of putting efforts to ensure overall health and well-being, the system works in a way which focuses on treating diseases. This has serious implications on the health infrastructure of the country. The session will deliberate on the need to move from the illness to wellness-oriented approach to health and touch upon matters such as-

  • Thrust on maintaining an active lifestyle.
